Council Notes. In referring t» a motion dealing with an additional health officer totho shire, Cr. Pitcairn outlined many in stances in which great inconvenience may accrue by people coming into Foster from a distance and finding tho present health officer away fiom home. He thought they should have another doctor and would move that Dr. Bai^ rett be appointed.

POLITENESS. A young 'girl was taking a trip acrosi the Atlantic. The sea was quit* rough and many were seasick. The girl was unusually quiet for her, so her father thought.

A PEEP INTO THE FUTURE. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 8 May 1914
A PEEP INTO THE FUTURE. "If the world goes on long enough" said Dr Lucas, "in perhaps half a mil lion years, the useless outer toes, being less and less employed, may gradually disappear." _ Happily, we shall none of us be alive to see the change. An other prophet, M. Brandt of Copenha gen, has an even more horrid vision of the future. It is his opinion that most of the women in years to come will have flowing boards and long mous taches I M. Brandt has taken the trouble to write a book on the subject, in whioh he gives many arguments in support of his idea. He says that evon at present, (juito 10 per cent of women have sprouting moustaches, only we do not notice this, as the ladies are very careful to pluck the hairs outl He says also, that the change will come vory slowly, and that a race of bearded wo men need no* be expected bofore a coupld of centuries. A "well-known doctor recently made the alarming state ment that only about 30 per cent of our present population have normal o...
WAGNER'S PERSONALITY. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 8 May 1914
£ JgAGNEB'S PERSONALITY. Something of tho complex pereon ility of Wagner may be gathered from in article by Mr. Jirnest Newman in the "Contemporary .Review." "There have boen"t(one or two musicians as groat as he," says Mr. Newman, "but certainly no man who ever wrote mu lic had a personality so complex, or managed to fill the stage so effectively both during and after °hiB lifetime. During a great port of hiB life the words most frequently on his lipa were 'renunciation' and 'resignation.' No man had ever less understanding of the real meanings of the words. This shy apostle of renunciation and resignation could not bear to live anywhere but in the very centre of the limelight. It is not • personality that one can wholly like, but of the power and fascination of it there oan ba no question. .Wag ner's was the hungrioit and moat ra pacious soul that ever inhabited; a musician's body. Talking for ever of love and the glory of its sacrifices, he laid his friends under contribution for...
WINDMILL WIRELESS. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 8 May 1914
WINDMILL WIRELESS. Holland is so flat that the wind mills with which it is studded are landmarks that can be seen for miles. So for centuries the windmill arms have been used as convenient signals. Births, deaths and marriages are often announced by this method in stead of by newspaper. The whole neighborhood knows that there has been a birth in the miller's family if the arms are seen in the po sition of a narow capital X, and with the two upper sails unfurled. If the miller is being married, the arms form a broader X, with all the sails unfurled. A death in the miller's family is announced by the wheel being turned till the arms form an upright cross, with all the sails unfurled. When this signal is shown all the other mills of the region show their sympathy by following suit. The code of windmill "wireless" is quite a lengthy one. The doctor can be called, an appointment postponed, and the message read miles away.

MARRIAGE AND IMPRISONMENT [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 8 May 1914
MARRIAGE AND IMPRISONMENT - European ^divorce reformers have often insisted that the imprisonment for life of a husband or wife should entitle the other party to re-marry. The Brooklyn Supreme Court has re cently decided that the wife of a man imprisoned on an "indeterminate sen tence"—in this instance for not less than twenty years—may re-marry, as the man is "civilly dead." Moreover, the judge declared that her re-mar riage did not require to be prefaced either by a divorce or the annulment of her previous union, while he also decided that even the husband's par don would not restore his marital rights.
MATTE. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 8 May 1914
MATTE. How many readers havo drunk a cup of matte? And why is not matte drunk at afternoon gatherings? In Chili, Paraguay, Brazil, Uruguay and Argen tina, it takes the place of tea. Mr. J. O. Oakenfull, in "Brazil in 1912" describes it, and shows how as a bever age it has outstripped coffee in coffee's own domain. Its Latin name is, of course, due tp its being found, probably, in the firSt instance, in Paraguay, but the State of Parana is the great seat of it* ex portation. The tree, or rather bush, ig soma 12 to 20 feet in height, and it rarely reaches 30 feet. It belongs to the hollies, but is without spinious leaves. The area over .which it is distributed in Parana alone is some 140,000 squaro kilometres, but it . is found in six other states, as well as in a small part of Argentina and Uruguay, near the Bra zilian frontier. Tile leaves are pre pared in two distinct wys. (1) Ground up into powder to be used in the cuia (or gourd), and the decoction, made with boiling water, is su...
A LITTLE NATURE TALK. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 8 May 1914
A LITTLE NATURE TALK. Not only naturalists, but everyone who has watched ants has wondered how they find their way to and from their nests. A French naturalist, M. Cornetz, who watched ants in Algeria, tells the results of his observations. The ant, he says, in its' outward jour ney, proceeds throughout in the di rection initially chosen; on its return the insect places its body at the same angle, and walks in the opposita di rection. The body of the ant wculd, there fore, act as a kind of compass needle. If an ant is caught at the nest and transported to a point some yards distant the insect is quite incapable of finding its way back. It runs around on the ground until it accidentally comes across the entrance to the bur row. The case is quite different if an ant is allowed to find its way to a distance unmolested. On leaving the nest it places itself in a certain direction, and holds the same, no matter what obstacles it may meet en route, and no matter what side tracks it may occ...
FOOTBALL. STONY CREEK DEFEAT MEENIYAN. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 8 May 1914
- FOOTBALL STONY CREEK DEFEAT MEENIYAN. The first match of the season was played on the local ground on Saturday, when Stony Creek and Meeniyan met. The game proved a disappointment to the large number of spectators pre sent, ias Stony Creek ran all over their opponents after the first quarter, and were not seriously troubled throughout. There has for years existed a keen rivalry between Stony Creek and Meeni yan, and whenever their repre sentatives meet, the spectators invariably witness, if not an. ex citing, at least a strenuous game, and Saturday's was no exception, although it is pleasing to note that there was nothing at all spiteful. A. Stansfield • cap tained the home team, and proved himself a good leader. Prior to the game he ad dressed his men, urging them to at all times play a manly, unsel fish, and, above all, a fair game, and show themselves to be true sportsmen. Such remarks ad dressed by a captain who has the self respect of his team cannot fail to influence the pla...
THE INTERVENTION OF JOHN CHUMLEY. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 8 May 1914
THE INTERVENTION OF j JOHN CHUMLEY. By John J. Armstrong. John Chumley lowered his sixpenny thriller as the tired-looking woman en tered his sitting-room, and regarded hei' with a smile on his broad red face. Seated in a remarkably easy chair, with slippers and his oldest jacket on, pipe well going, and a glass of what he termed "comfort" to his hand, John, on this Christmas Eve, would have admitted that he was doing very well. He was getting to the age when material comforts are appreciated. "Well, most excellent; Mrs. Moggs!" he said, cheerily. "Quite ready for Christmas?" "Christmas don't mean much to me these times,". returned the tliin-faced landlady. "Things wus difl'reht when ho wus alive. Now, with my lad in India, it'll be quiet enough. I got an invite this mornin' from my sister Pem, in Plarstow but I'm sendin' her a postcard." "Why not go and have a romp?" suggested John. "And my best gentleman left here on his own!" "Nonsense!" protested John, with his jolly laugh. "As i...

The Error Was Correct. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 8 May 1914
The Error Was Correct. Editor: I regret very much, Mr Roarer, that my paper referred to your starring tour as a "starving" one. Actor: Dont mention it. Your statement was absolutely correct. "Do you keep stationery here?" asked a. young woman of a salesman in a general shop. "Not much," repled the young man rubbing his hands together. "The old man's' so stingy with his coal we have to bustle about to keep warm." An open-air orator once received this poser. "I tell you, gentlemen," he exclaim ed—"and the experience of a lifetime confirms my statement—that if you want a thing 'Well done you must do it yourself!" "How about getting your hair cut?" asked a man in the crowd. In San Francisco, a few days ago, a telephone courtship of only an hour or so led to a marriage. Just a rr up, ring off, and then a ring on. The young man who recently mar ried an American millionaire's daugh ter says he is passionately fond of flowers. Especially the mari-gold.

KITCHEN WRINKLES. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 8 May 1914
KITCHEN WRINKLES. Lime powder well sprinkled where cockroaches abound will drive them away. If bacon is soaked in water for a few minutes before frying it will pre vent the fat from running. When starching holland pinafores, put a little strong tea into the starch. This keeps the garments a good col or. When boiling fowls or fish, add to the water in which they are boiled the juice of half a lemon. This will make them beautifully white. If moths are in a carpet, spread a damp towel over the part and iron it dry with a hot iron. The heat and steam will kill the worms and eggs. When washing chamois leathers add a little ammonia to the water. This cleans them beautifully, and helps to make them soft and pliable. When making a roly-poly pudding, after spreading the paste .with jam sprinkle a layer of fine breadcrumbs before rolling and tying up. This pre vents the jam from boiling out. Old nail holes in wood may be filled up by mixing sawdust with glue till it is the consistency of stif...
